do i need my own ec2 for .net 4.5 applications?

Do I need to create my own, private EC2 instance to support building a .NET 4.5 application with Bamboo?  I see that the related BAM-12013 BAM-12103 is a 3-year old Improvement request that has not been updated in a while, but can't find anything else to definitively answer this question.  If I can get around creating my own EC2 instance and use what Bamboo provides automatically, I would prefer to do that.

So, is there a Bamboo-provided solution?

You'll probably need to confirm that Bamboo Cloud is not running on a Windows plat. If yes, you'll probably need to spin up an remote agent for work to begin.

Hi Bruce,

At present Bamboo Cloud requires that you configure your own AWS account.  Bamboo Cloud works on a model of spinning up EC2 instances on demand and shutting them down when they are not needed.

Also, the issue you mentioned doesn't appear to exit?


Here is the issue: I had the number wrong.


I have an AWS account.  I have hooked Bamboo Cloud up to it.  But the EC2 instance that it spins up does not have .NET 4.5, so I am thinking that I need to create my own custom elastic image (  Which is daunting...But I'm working on it.

My question is, do I really need to create a custom elastic image, or is there some way to build a .NET 4.5 application using pre-defined elastic images?




Okay, that makes a lot more sense.  One alternative approach that you could consider is that you could install the .NET 4.5 SDK on the agent as part of your build process.

Also, I'll see if I can follow up that ticket for you, and update this post.
